The game is the same but technology has arrived - no more manual scoring
Technology continues to evolve. All sessions are now using an android tablet as the table scoring unit. These are called Bridge Tabs. They work seamlessly with our existing scoring system. They have the advantage of besides being touch screen, the larger colorful display is easy for all players to read. What are Bridge Tabs? Check the video
2018 will start with 24 Bridge Tab units.
2020 The year of covid. This was the time the club went contactless. Scan cards were introduced and members were sent Statements each month. Generally members were asked to keep there table money account in credit and top up as necessary. This resulted in a considerable amount of time saving for directors and treasurer as they no longer had to handle cast.
2021 Covid still around but fortunately bridge has only had a little disruption this year. After 9 months of using scan cards the club now no longer requires there use. With the help of BridgeNZ ( Scorer software ) we developed a template that displays monthly player session data, captured from members putting their bridge number into the tablets. This still interfaces with the software from the previous year and statements are quickly generated each month.
